White supremacy: America’s long-standing pyramid scheme | The marrow in the wind
Remember Charlottesville, when the racists chanted “The Jews will not replace us”? I think a lot of people ignored this because they didn’t know how to take it seriously. Obviously, Jews are not going to become the mainstream. white people.
Most whites don’t know enough about the tropes of white supremacy to recognize it, at least not in this form. But now Tucker Carlson spends time most nights talking about the “Big Replacement” and U.S. Representative Matt Gaetz from Florida is here tweeting about how racist the Anti-Defamation League is and the replacement theory is real. And now the full scope of the theory is made public – the theory being that Jews are organizing American politics (everything from abortion laws to immigration quotas to support LGBTQ people and the demasculinization of white boys) in order to to make whites a minority in “our” own country.
As some readers may know, I’m working on a book about three unsolved Integration Age bombings that took place here in Nashville in the late 1950s and early 1960s. (Read more about that here.) It actually caused me to spend a lot of time studying the rise of this particular conspiracy theory. In reality, the The factor that led to the bombing of schools, churches and black houses in the South was the involvement of anti-Semitic racists. A community could have everything else – including schools, prominent black civil rights lawyers, extremely pissed off violent racists – but without this belief that they were at war with Jews over the role of blacks in American society, racists didn’t bomb things.
When I tell people that now, it often shocks them. But it was known to the FBI and Southern state governments who attended the Southern Bombing Conference in 1958. Let me say it again, because here we are in the final months of 2021, 63 years older. late, still faced with this: The FBI and Southern state governments have known since 1958 that the key ingredient in deadly violence against blacks was the belief that Jews were manipulating blacks in order to loosen the grip that whites, mainly Protestants, have over power in this country.
And we’re still there, because we never learn from history. Shit happens, and we as a country rush to get over it as soon as possible. Then we get confused when the problem we ignored is still a problem and still hurts people.
But there are other things we can learn from history, because we see it repeating itself over and over again. White supremacists, I’m talking to you.
White supremacy is a pyramid system. Sometimes, like in the second wave of the Ku Klux Klan, it was just a layered marketing plan. But it’s still a pyramid scheme. I mean, you can see the form of that in the concept itself: a discernible group of people are “better than” other people in their society. The rest of that society is ranked according to their acceptability – White first, then Asians, then Middle Easterners, then Blacks, or whatever chart your particular brand of racism uses.
But there are the two things that racists really need to sit in their hearts: 1. The pyramid scheme doesn’t go away when it wins. Why ? This is the winning configuration. 2. Most racist leaders are really shitty people who use racism as an outlet for all their terrible urges. It does not mean that they are not racist. That is, they are bad people who are not suddenly going to become good people if all the non-white people magically disappear. KKK member John Kasper led anti-integration riots in Clinton, Tennessee in the 1950s, and it was other racists who blew up his headquarters – because Kasper continued to stand up for himself. involve with their wives and daughters. Matt Heimbach is a well-known white supremacist who is said to have had an affair with his stepmother. They are not honest people.
OK, white supremacists, now that you’ve sat with these two truths in your hearts for just a second, let me ask you something: if the racists win, what happens to you?
Whenever white Americans get nervous that non-whites outnumber them, the definition of “white” expands. The Irish have become white; Eastern Europeans have turned white; Hell, it’s pretty common these days to see white supremacists of Greek descent, and there’s no way Greeks or Italians were considered “really white” by fanatics until very recently. .
So you created this system to sort people out to where white people are best. And we must at least suspect that the sorting will continue until the white race is “purified”. I mean, 1930s Germany was damn white, and the Nazis were still making up a lot of people who weren’t white enough and had to be killed. So the historical precedent is that there will be a purge of what is not white enough. Are you sure you are white enough to find your place in the middle, towards the top of the new white supremacist hierarchy? Do you have a last name like Martinez or Sunic and you think you are really going to be quite white? If America is truly a white country founded by and for whites, what was considered white when the country was founded did not even fully include Germans or Swedes. Founder Benjamin Franklin said this:
That the number of pure white people in the world is proportionately very small. All of Africa is black or tawny. Asia mainly fawn. America (excluding newcomers) quite so. And in Europe, the Spaniards, Italians, French, Russians and Swedes, are generally of what we call a swarthy complexion; as are also the Germans, the Saxons alone excepted, who, with the English, form the principal body of whites on the face of the Earth.
“Pure white people”, according to our white supremacist traditions, are Saxons and English. How many of you still count?
Okay then, let’s say you’re entirely English and / or Saxon. Take a look at Donald Davidson and Richard Spencer. Do you have a fairly good college education? Do you have the right social networks? Are you special enough to be invited to hang out with “thought leaders”? Or even if you are the right kind of white, have you been relegated to the underclass because you don’t have the right education?
It’s a pyramid scheme. There is no room at the top for all of you.
And here’s the real kicker: most of you already are the Great Replacement. You are the non-whites who came and changed our country and took places that were intended for whites. You are the nightmare your evil silly friends terrify you with. You just turned white to do it. (Hello, Scottish-Southern Irish!)
So you can either embrace the multicultural society you already represent, of which you are already proof, and appreciate the nation as it is, you have included – or you can continue to be the foot soldiers of a movement that will turn around. against you when the time comes. But notice my words: it will backfire when the time comes.
